REALTORS® Dedicate Bicycle Repair Station in Rochester

SPRINGFIELD (May 5, 2017) “REALTORS® do much more than provide valuable brokerage services and show up at the closing table. They stay ingrained in the community and find opportunities to contribute both on an individual level and on an organizational level,” said John Klemm of Sangamon Realty and President of the Capital Area REALTORS.

Klemm made this statement at a ribbon cutting ceremony that took place today in Rochester, IL at the comfort station on the Lost Bridge Trail where Route 29 intersects with W. Main. The ribbon cutting ceremony was for the dedication of a new bicycle repair station installed by CAR’s Government Affairs Committee.

This effort underscores CAR’s continued efforts to enhance the community in which we all live. Funding for this initiative was made possible by the National Association of REALTORS via its Placemaking program which is intended to foster the creation of vibrant, public spaces for the community to gather.

It was noted that this is expected to be the first of a series of initiatives spearheaded by CAR’s Government Affairs Committee and underwritten by the National Association of REALTORS via the Placemaking program with the next initiative being a parklet situated in downtown Springfield.

The Capital Area Association of REALTORS® is the Voice for Real Estate in the Capital Area representing more than 800 members involved in all aspects of the real estate industry. The Capital Area’s Resource for Real Estate Information can be found at
